Note1 : Geographically, Ciuc is in Transylvania on the Moldova-Transylvania border. Ethnographic, Ciuc is similar to Moldova. Until 1950' this transition area between Transylvania and Moldova belonged to Ciuc and Odorhei counties. After 1950 these counties were renamed as Harghita and Covasna. Look on the map and see that Ciuc and Bacau are next to each other and that the costumes are somehow similar. Tulghes is similar to Neamt.
